Trophies and Triumphs for Divine word girls Camogie

As you all know Divine word school Camogie team made it to Croke park on Monday the 10th of June this year. We started the day with War paint and plaits courtesy of Mrs Hayes. Then we all headed to the buses with a guard of honour cheering us on. The atmosphere on the bus was ecstatic and was filled with chants and laughter but the nerves were running high. Entering the stadium was like living a childhood dream. We ‘climbed the steps of the Hogan stand’ and watched the boys finish at half time on a draw. But we had to leave to prepare for the biggest match of our lives so far. As we walked onto the pitch we saw the boys hoisting the trophy. The pressure was on, but our nerves were settled when our Captain won the coin toss. After much advice from our coaches we were ready, the match had begun………

Within a minute Naithí had scored a jammy dodger sandwich with peanut butter on top goal. Our hopes deflated rapidly but we picked ourselves up with a great goal from Maisy white and a point from Ciara kellegher. Sadly they got a point to make it level at the stroke of half time.

With an inspirational speech from our captain we went out with high hopes and we sure lived up to them with a further 2 points and 2 goals courtesy of Aoife Sneyd (1-o) Holly Mcanerny (1-0) and Ciara Kellegher (0-2). And after a long fought second half that glorious final whistle blew. The final score was 3-3 to 1-2, we had won. We jumped for joy with many tears shed. After the trophy and medal presentation many pictures were taken. We headed back on the bus and had a wonderful party at the Johns clubhouse. We would like to give many thanks to Mrs Hayes for doing our amazing hair and to Helen and Barbara for organising the party afterwards and most importantly our coaches Mr O’Connell and Mr Conlon for everything They have done for us this Camogie season.
